We have tried for years to find the perfect the house and after over 15 years, we finally did. My husband and I and our three boys stayed here last week and fell in love. I'm sure it's not for everyone, but we are minimalists and loved the fact that everything was so simple, but well appointed. From the Trader Joe's soap to the amazing bath towels we loved everything. Each room is literally on a different level which afforded incredible views to the Sea of Cortez. The patios were awesome, the palapa was perfect (we travel light so did not bring umbrellas and were able to have respite from the sun while watching our little guys build stuff in the sand).

EVERYTHING was incredibly well maintained and perfect for our family. From the doors to the tile on the floors and patios, the master bedroom and bath were great the other bathroom and shower was roomy enough for our 3 boys, everything was working, hinges on cabinets, the kitchen tools were kitchenaid and great quality and all felt new.

Pepe stopped in to make sure everything was good and Nena made the house spotless upon our arrival.

I can't say enough great things about this place - If Michael and Alison will have us we will be coming back for ever!

Another great stay at the Starship

  • 5 of 5

Went down just after the new year for several days. It is a great time of year down there- no crowds, shrimp season in full swing, perfect weather and we even swam. It's a little chilly but beautiful once you are in. The house is in perfect condition and has everything you need. Perfect for families or small groups of friends. Definitely our favorite house on the beach in Las Conchas. Thanks Michael and Alison!

Great Property

Life is good at Mike and Allison's. We loved our stay and want to return again and again. Access to everything was easy.... beach, security, shopping, cooking, water toys, and some very relaxing rest. Thank you. : )

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

It's a beautiful property on a secluded and peaceful beach. I've rented homes on RP beaches several times, but this was the best experience so far! Michael and Alison communicated so quickly and the home was so clean, comfortable and well-stocked. It had everything we wanted: beautiful views, easy access to the beach and a safe and secure property in a gated community. This was my first time in Las Conchas. I usually stay farther out where the beach is less rocky, but I really liked being closer to town. Running to the store, wifi and central heat and A/C makes a big difference for longer stays. The cute palaypa is just a few steps away and felt like having our own private little bar on the beach and we enjoyed the stars as we sat by the fire pit on the roof. The angles and levels are really fun and make the home very interesting. The beds are very comfortable, the linens are cozy and the shower was fantastic. It was a fabulous Christmas on the beach with good friends and I would highly recommend.

One of the Best Vacations of My Life

  • 5 of 5

I experienced the Starship as a magical "home"... not simply a beach house.

On so many levels, it felt like I was in the home of my dreams. All of the details of the interior design overwhelmed my sense of curiosity; it was impossible to imagine that designers and builders would think of everything so specifically, from the intricate woodwork, unique color palettes, ingenious cabinetry, and beautiful tiles --to-- the user-friendly craftsmanship of windows and doors, the fascinating brick ceiling, such organic points of entry, and spectacular view points from any location in the home.

Being in the Starship felt like I was in a space that invited inner healing and self-reflection, and informed mental and emotional clarity. The beauty of the home and its immediate proximity to the Sea of Cortez are amazing and difficult to adequately describe.

Equally profound for me was the deep personal feelings I connected with in Las Conchas and the open and safe spaces everywhere (in the home and on the beach) that provided me opportunities to heal and reflect on a spiritual and mental level, and to make important life decisions. I came with an open heart, mind, eyes, and ears and experienced the power, wonder, magic, and sense of adventure that The Starship lavishly and generously offered.

As for the local community--I also had an opportunity to sight-see and to engage local residents at the Oxxo convenience store, the Pemex gas station, the Sonoran Sea restaurant on the other side of the Sea (best fresh fish-Veracruz flounder- and best refreshing beverage--Limes with Sparkling water--I've had in MANY years), and the Candy Cake Bakery (the best Pastel de Tres Leches and vibrant cafe!). Everyone was so very friendly, helpful, and hospitable towards me. They were patient with my developing Spanish and everywhere I went, at least one or more person(s) spoke some or fluent English.

The ride down through Gila Bend and Ajo (Arizona) and Mexico Highway 8 was enjoyable, scenic, and indeed "hassle-free." Border agents on both sides were courteous and pleasant.

I recommend purchasing an inexpensive and basic Telcel phone (US$25) at an Oxxo in Mexico to guarantee cell phone reception.

Thank-you Alison and Mike for a wonderful "home" that had every amenity that could be anticipated and for the extravagant packet of information to accompany my accommodations. This will always be one of my best and favorite vacations.

About Michael Hughes and Alison Marshall

Our dear friend Alan built the Starship Beach House in 1991 and infused it with a wonderful spirit, much like his own. The beach here is graced with gentle waves and is a great place for long walks and shelling, kayaking and swimming. It's a perfect spot to escape and relax at the beach.

Michael Hughes and Alison Marshall purchased this house in 2016

Why Michael Hughes and Alison Marshall chose Las Conchas

This house has a beautiful beach setting, privacy, spectacular views, comfortable furnishings and is just ten minutes away from town (Puerto Penasco).

What makes this house unique

The decks of this house are magical. If your timing is right you can sit on the roof deck and watch the sun set at one end of the beach and the full moon rise on the other, with the Sea of Cortez in front of you. Down below, sitting under the palapa is THE perfect place to watch the waves, read, sip a beverage and enjoy the ocean.

Please note: This is a perfect place to enjoy the beach but the Las Conchas HOA prohibits renters bringing and/or using ATV's iin the Las Conchas community.
